Yes, most likely OpenSSL < 1.0.0 appeared in your $PATH when you created
the config for the test framework, while httpd is now running with
OpenSSL 1.0.0 (grepping for "OpenSSL" in t/logs/error_log should confirm

The root cause is that OpenSSL has changed its issuer hash algorithm
between these two versions, so if you create the test config with
OpenSSL 0.9.8, you will have the following crl directory:

$ ls -l t/conf/ssl/ca/asf/crl
total 4
lrwxr-xr-x  1 kbrand  kbrand   13 Jan 18 18:01 9d0c6ffe.r0 -> ca-bundle.crl
-rw-r--r--  1 kbrand  kbrand  552 Jan 18 18:01 ca-bundle.crl

OpenSSL 1.0.0 and later will look for an "fdd35eee.r0" CRL file, however.
To work around this, execute "ln -s ca-bundle.crl fdd35eee.r0" in that

I think you're misinterpreting this message - here, "CRL checking mode"
only states what kind of checking is set... whether it passes or fails
can only be seen from the succeeding message (either there isn't any,
or you will see "Certificate Verification: Error (3): unable to get
certificate CRL" and the like).
